At Home at Mateo’s Restaurant Café

There’s always this one restaurant that I always pass by everyday but never got to try.  One would think that I have already done so since it’s literally in front of my condo building, yet somehow I just never found the time. I guess that with the proximity of the place, I’ve been too complacent that it will always be there for me to try.

But I finally broke the spell.

On a nice Wednesday evening, my brother and I planned to watch “The Accountant” at the cinema, but I wanted to shop more and the only time slot available was the ‘last full show’. So, that meant we had 3 hours to spare. We looked at each other and thought: what in the leaping lizards will we do within 3 hours?

Then ding! came a great idea that maybe it was finally time to try Mateo’s!

Desiree Takes Europe

Bonjour!

I guess the first words I’m probably going to say to you is I’M SORRY because I owe you all an apology for not posting for months!!! (WHY DES?!)

As with other college students in their last year, I was swamped with TONS of schoolwork. I mean, I know college is stressful, but the past few months have tested my patience, mental and emotional state. Not to mention, we started working on our thesis, legit this time, and we also had to apply for internships. I was also doing some stuff for the student organization that I’m part of, whose members I already consider my second family. They also support my blog and ka-echosan all the way!

To put it simply, I had a lot on my plate and they were not food, much to my chagrin.

To give you guys a little update, I’ve already graduated from university last October 15! YAAS! So much has happened really. Hopefully, this means that I have more time to blog. Also, to make it clear, I am definitely not abandoning this blog! I’m back!!!!
